Innovation Scholarship Essay Contest

It’s time for the 2nd Annual Innovation Scholarship from Herrman & Herrman, P.L.L.C.

This day in age, one of the great technological innovations has been social media. Social media has become a big part of how we communicate with each other, and a big part of our daily lives altogether. Herrman & Herrman, P.L.L.C. cares about the future of drivers, whether they are a novice or experienced, and we work towards making our roads as safe as possible.

To help increase the awareness about social media’s impact on driving, our Texas car accident lawyers are sponsoring our 2nd annual essay contest with $5,000 in prizes to help young people further their education.


To enter, students should write a 600+ word essay on the following topic:

How has social media affected the safety of driving? Describe the ways that social media has become a distraction for drivers and impacted the safety of our roads and highways.

The contest is open to high school juniors and seniors, and students currently enrolled in 2-year or 4-year colleges or universities in the United States. We believe that getting an education is the best hope for young people to attain a rewarding career in the 21st century. We are proud to offer assistance with scholarship prizes to help further your education.
